    Apologies. I never could get poiconverter to work properly. I've now corrected the post above.

    What error do you get on ov2upi?

    1) Get PocketGPS speed cameras for Tom Tom. I got the November 2007 release. The files should be .ov2 files, one for each camera type, e.g

    pocketgps_uk_gatso_20.ov2
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.ov2
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_40.ov2
    .... etc etc

    Make sure that you have the equivalent logos in bmp format for the files. e.g.

    pocketgps_uk_gatso_20.bmp
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.bmp
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_40.bmp
    .... etc etc

    4) run ov2upi, but run it for each ov2 file individually. I found that it didn't work properly when you told it to convert an entire directory at once.

    5) You should have lots of upi files now.

    pocketgps_uk_gatso_20.upi
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.upi
    pocketgps_uk_gatso_40.upi
    .... etc etc

    Rename these to whatever you want to appear inside Sygic Drive. e.g. I named mine

    Fixed Speed Camera @ 20.upi
    Fixed Speed Camera @ 30.upi
    Fixed Speed Camera @ 40.upi
    .... etc etc

    6) Copy these upi files into your map directory e.g. GBR. Don't copy default.upi

    7) Copy all bmp files into the Icons directory in Sygic Drive. Don't rename them. IIRC a few don't display properly so you have to load them into Irfanview or something & increase their colours to 8bit.

    8) If you load up Sygic Drive now, you should see new categories in your POI management. You should see them named however you named the file & you should see an icon to the left of the name. If you enable them & look at the map, you should see the icon on the map.

    9) If you want alerting as you approach a camera, you have to do the following...

    10) copy wav files into the Sounds directory for your alerts. Get these from wherever you fancy. Personally, I used the ones from GatsohunterRR which in turn were borrowed from FreeDrive.

    11) Edit SKIN/application.skin. USE NOTEPAD NOT WORDPAD. search for "managePOI.alarm". You should see 3 lists. items, sounds & icons. You need to add new items referencing the sounds that you added using a default icon. You can't add your own icons. Make up the name for the item for now - anything you want. e.g. here's mine

    <listBox id="listBox.managePOI.selectSound" bitmapSound="_b.checkOff"
    items="
    managePOI.alarm
    managePOI.alarm
    managePOI.alarm
    managePOI.alarm
    managePOI.ring
    managePOI.ring
    managePOI.ring
    managePOI.beep
    managePOI.beep
    managePOI.beep
    managePOI.cam30
    managePOI.cam40
    managePOI.cam50
    managePOI.cam60
    managePOI.cam70
    managePOI.camera
    managePOI.mobile
    managePOI.redlight
    managePOI.speed"
    sounds="
    Sounds\Beep.wav
    Sounds\Beep2.wav
    Sounds\Beep3.wav
    Sounds\Beep4.wav
    Sounds\Bell.wav
    Sounds\Phone.wav
    Sounds\Ring.wav
    Sounds\Whistle.wav
    Sounds\Beep2.wav
    Sounds\Alarm2.wav
    Sounds\cam30.wav
    Sounds\cam40.wav
    Sounds\cam50.wav
    Sounds\cam60.wav
    Sounds\cam70.wav
    Sounds\Camera.wav
    Sounds\mobile.wav
    Sounds\redlight.wav
    Sounds\speed.wav"
    icons="
    _i.alertBeep
    _i.alertBeep
    _i.alertBeep
    _i.alertBeep
    _i.alertRing
    _i.alertRing
    _i.alertRing
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertBeep
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    _i.alertAlarm
    "/>

    Save it

    12) Edit SKIN/English.lang (or whatever your lang is). USE NOTEPAD NOT WORDPAD

    Search for <lang id="managePOI.beep" text="Beep"/> Copy that line & add your new items as you want them to appear in the menu using the names you chose in the previous step.

    e.g. here's mine

    <lang id="managePOI.cam30" text="Speed Camera @ 30"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.cam40" text="Speed Camera @ 40"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.cam50" text="Speed Camera @ 50"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.cam60" text="Speed Camera @ 60"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.cam70" text="Speed Camera @ 70"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.camera" text="Camera"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.mobile" text="Mobile Speed Camera"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.redlight" text="Redlight Camera"/>
    <lang id="managePOI.speed" text="Speed Camera"/>


    13) Load Sygic Drive, go to the Manage POI section & add an alert for your speed cameras. The alert sounds menu should now show the new items you entered.
    I wonder if using the above process if its possible to add Uk traffic too using my Traffic System that RT put together on DC....

    Of course, you could even automate it, however, I'm not sure if you can update the POI file at the same time that Sygic Drive is using it. IIRC, Sygic Drive can avoid certain POI.

    How often do you update the Traffic System POI file?

    Every three or five mins.... its live.

    I was thinking you could automate it as POIEdit can be ran from a command line.....

    is it possible for someone to zip up all the uk spped cams converted for me, as I am having problems with the converter, and either pm me, or post somewhere for me to download?

    Then I can really try this program

    Terran,

    I can't see how this would work properly using the POI files. However it might be possible to make a program that feeds your data in as TMC. I can't see it being that tricky provided all the TMC protocol data is available.

    Its not great granted but at least it would show on the map as a POI like the speed cam and you could have an audio warning then sussed.

    Well, I'm going to investigate the TMC option too. I'd also like to see if I can get TMC data from a Silabs radio too & inject it into the NMEA.

    I don't think it goes into the NMEA, in through another comport.
